it, "obama's other speech. the barely recognizable obama." claims government spends too much on suburbs, not quote, our earlier neighborhood. here now with remarks on how response to hurricane katrina differed from hurricane andrew and for 9/11 attacks. >> down in new orleans where they have not rebuild a year later, there's money you can get from the government called the staff ford act. and basically it says when you get federal money, you have to give a 10% local match. the government has to come up with 10%. every $10 federal government comes up with, local government has to come up with a dollar. now here's the thing, when 9/11 happened in new york city, they waved the safford act saying we can't ask new york city to rebuild. they said, here's $10 and that was the right thing to do. when hurricane andrew struck in florida, people said, look at this devastation. we don't expect you to come up with your own money. here's the money to rebuild. we are not going to wait for you to scratch it together. because you're part of the american family. >> what's happening down in new
debates later on. maybe you two can negotiate that. if you cut government benefits -- a secretly recorded video of mitt romney at a private fund- raiser was made public -- let's take a look. >> 47% of the people -- who will vote for the president a matter what. who believe the government has responsibility to care for them. who believe they are entitled to health care and food and housing, you name it. that is an entitlement. >> texas -- in 2010, 30.5% of texans filing era -- return paid no income tax. there is no data on how many texans get government assistance, but the census bureau found 24% get social security. 20 -- 14% did retirement income. 5% disability bed -- benefits and 14% from strands. mr. cruz, do you believe that government has a responsibility to care for them? >> of course not. i agree with mitt romney when he says his comments were poorly phrased. keefe said they were in elegantly stated. i think there is a difference. part of the philosophy of president obama is trying to get as many americans as possible dependent on government so that the democrats can stay in power
on the government and victims and who he would never be able to reach because he would not be able to purr suede them to take responsibility for their lives. >> i'll never convince 47% of the country to take personal responsibility and care for their lives. those comments he describes his disdain for half the country, those comments have had a measurable impact on the campaign. in the new poll just released in the last couple hours, people say those remarks from mr. romney made them feel more negative than positive toward mr. romney by a 22-point margin. those results match other polling that shows those comments alienated undecided voters. regardless of what you think of the substance of that it statement from mr. romney, it did turn the whole republican pundit class against him, called every candidate in a contested race to distance themselves from the presidential nominee of their party to start campaigning against mitt romney, telling voters, listen, i don't like that guy on that issue either, but vote for me any way even though i'm a republican. whether or not you think the remarks were sca
who are not in the government, it's incumbent on us to continue to encourage cooperation inside and outside. all of us have thoughts and suggestions to offer and some have technological expertise to land or policy expertise as well but it doesn't have to be done internally and it's terrifying when the government says we are here to help you. we are from the transparency community. we are here to help house well. with that i would like to thank all of the panelists. i would like to thank representative fisa and -- issa and quigly. please visit transparentycaucess for the next event and thank you all so much. [applause] i want to raise an issue that has been for two or three weeks specifically on the national security terms. you already are the oldest president in history and some of your staff say you were tired after your most recent encounter with mr. mondale. i recall president kennedy had to go days on end with bear minimum sleep during the cuban missile crisis. is there any doubt in your mind you would be able to function in such circumstances? >> not at all. i want you to k

will show up to govern the white house. but those doubts all but evaporated, and i quote . . . here to discuss who is really eric bates, executive editor of "rollingstone" magazine. thanks for joining us. >> thank for having me. >> eliot: mitt romney did in fact -- the morph that destroyed him from moderate sensible creatable intellect to far-right stooge, how did he done that. >> we decided he would go to the far right, pose as a severe conservative, and then somehow magically shake the etch-a-sketch and come back to center. >> eliot: if he had been smarter and more nimble he would have said you know i'm going to etch-a-sketch, but he stuck to the far right and showed himself at the end of the day to approximate completely spineless. >> all along people have been saying who is the real mitt romney? how will we know what he really stands for? and i think the moment that was cemented into place was when he picked paul ryan. there was a lot of argument for him to pick centerist like pall leapty. and then gofer nor quest said this choice outlines the future for the
the message in this speech was the federal government doesn't like you because you are black. and then you've seen a lot of folks in the mainstream media come out and say that's not a news story, this is old tape, you know, at least portions of it were run -- tucker says not the relevant portions. so there's a real question about what, if any, impact this has on this presidential race four-and-a-half weeks out, almost five weeks out from election day. your thoughts? >> well, megyn, think about it this way for barack obama at that time when he was, as mike emanuel said, a long shot, the thing he was trying to do was consolidate the black vote bekind him. he went down there to establish himself as the black candidate in the race because there was no way he was going to beat hillary clinton or the other candidates like john edwards and others who were ahead of him in line. he needed to consolidate the black vote, and he went down there, and he told an african-american audience what they wanted to hear. he gave them the rhetoric and used the sort of dialect that he thought would go over well w
, and governing. so we've assembled a panel of distinguish americans, i would say, to talk about the state of country and where they think america is today. mark zandi is with the moody analytics. he has a new book out called, "paying the price, ending the great recession and building a new american century." michelle rhee is the head of students first, an organization that hopes to reform public education. she, of course, is the former head ofure d.c. schools. former speaker newt gingrich is rejoining us. he does not have a new book out, but his wife calista, does have a new book out, a children's book that will be coming out tomorrow. bob woodward, an associate editor of the "washington post" is the author of "the price of politics" he's written more books than this entire table combined. well, maybe not when you put newt gingrich in there. and pulitzer prize-winning author hendrick smith who has a new book called, "who stole the american dream?" all you people are here to sell books. that's pretty clear. ( laughter ) no, i'm teasing. we're glad to have all of you. mark zandi, let's ju
perspective when it comes to the tune of government than i do. i think you believe that government is the wherewithal for what we need in this country. i do not. i believe in private enterprise, private responsibility, but i thank you for your service. welcome for that service. i respect that she is a mother, a rancher, a small business person. i think she is campaigning in all three of those things they have a great deal of respect for what she did on a school board and a legislature. you are always putting yourself at risk. we have fundamental disagreements. the negative advertising, in one year and -- on you have to do is avoid watching television is not a bad option. what she just said is not true. i started a business in nebraska, and the first thing i had to do to start our business must get a permit from the city office, talk to the county, the state. i understand that government does not create jobs. i understand you've got to be careful with taxes and regulation to make that hpen. thats political rhetoric in my view, and it does not resemble the facts. she said it is diffu
, claims the government spends too much on suburbs, not enough on "our neighborhoods." earlier, we played the clip about where he praised jeremiah wright. and now the difference of the response of hurricane katrina to hurricane andrew. >> down in new orleans, there is a federal law called the stafford act. the local government has to give a match. here is the thing. when 9/11 happened in new york city, they waved the stafford act. forget that dollar you have to put in. here is $10. and that was the right thing to do. when hurricane andrew struck in florida, they said look at this devastation, don't expect you to put that money in. what's happening in new orleans? where is your dollar, where is your stafford act money? makes no sense. tells me the but let hasn't been taken out. tells me that somehow the people in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> president obama, that was five years ago. decide for yourself whether this shows a side of barack obama never been seen before as the daily caller suggestsor nothing new. the president seems to be speaking at a difference cadence and
was that romney was, que, obviouslyic inarte in making his point about t ans o dendent on government, 4 here's how pl ryan makes that me poi. >> t poi is we are reaching scal tipping point. the moral tipping point is en worse. thmoral tipping int is before too long we could bece innded to be. we could becoma society where tht majorityf americans are takers, not makers. other great think tank run i'm kind of a numbs guy. 20% of ameeir income frothe feda govement ey areependent. another 20% ofmericans get 40% of their income from the fere benefits fm thfederal governme in dollar value than they pay back inaxes. so you could argue wre alrdy past that tipping point. the od news is surveafr su, poll a poll still shows we're a center right 70/30 country. 70% of americans want the americanream. want thwelfst >> 30% oamericans notant the american dream. 30% of amens do not believe in the american idea. 30% of americans just want the . the ideahat a large poion of americanare bend the rea of the kind olitics the republican ticket is offing, it turns out it's both guys on the ticket who bieve that. o
out with dignity, we gave the government there a chance. whether they take the chance or not, i don't know. afghanistan doesn't even look like we're going to get out of there with a stable government 'cause karzai is a crook, i think he's a crook. and the taliban just waiting in the mountains of pakistan and come in as soon as we leave. okay. let's go to iran. the president says he's making inroads with alt sanctions, that they're suffering there and that they're going to cave and if they don't, he'll do what's necessary. what we must is what he said, to prevent them from having nuclear weapons. why has that policy failed? >> no government in modern history stopped another government from building a nuke. the problem we have in iran is do you police to us policy. we have companies in the united states, companies all over the world doing economic business, making money in iran. you want to hurt iran? you got to play hard ball economically. the military option has got to be off the table. >> bill: so you think that when you say the military option has to be off the table, certainly no

the government as a two party government. that is how i think it should stay. third parties -- they have never made an impact in elections. i do not think they are relevant at all. i want to thank you for letting me get -- this is my first time in years i have gotten on c- span. host: we are glad to hear from me. caller: know, i do not think they are relevant. host: next is shannon from missouri. are you a member of a third party? caller: yes. you get disgruntled with you hear people like bill oreilly and sean hannity saying ron paul can't win. it every time he gets up to speak he draws a bigger crowds then obama or romney. the motion is amazing. i run into so many people -- you always hear they cannot win. if they could get more coverage other than c-span, c-span are the only people that are fair to third-party people compared to fox or cnn or ms nbc or any of the other ones. i wish more people would watch c-span and educate themselves to receive more votes. host: thank you for the call. one of your saying -- as we said earlier, ross perot sitting down for his first extended interview in many
and then you have a problem. >> you can say this is complicated. under our system of government, the tie to go to congress. the of the one selected by the people and came up with what they thought was a law that would prevent corruption. five justices said no, we have a better way to do that. hen you car in the area of something that is as murky as this, the members of the legislature or the members of the court will have a better sense of what the dangers are of corruption and how to avoid them. >> maybe you can talk a little bit about where you see congress going on this issue? this is certainly something that congress will not let live forever. you also mentioned that there has always been money and it flows through the cracks and moves in mysterious ways. what is next on the national level? >> right now, it is not a bipartisan issue. in the near term, i don't imagine what will happen. there are fundamental forces in the election which allow that to ships. -- to shift. there is an idea that think the wealthy are treated differently than main street. main street appeals almost equally to act
government planning. it's the debate of the decade and it happens in just a couple of hours. good evening. i'm larry kudlow. this is a special edition of "the kudlow report." you're looking at a live picture of the university of denver. 8:00 p.m. eastern, president obama and mitt romney will face off in their first of three debates. we have an all star panel tonight. former congressman rick lazio and former clinton white house aide keith boykin. and herman cain tells us what it's like to debate kevin madden. it's all about leadership and leadership means taking control of the conversation. that's just my advice. in an anemic overall economy, we've seen some positives in recent days. the ism services surprised on the up side today, 15 million car sales yesterday and of course stocks have been rising since a year ago today. the s&p is up 32%. so things can't be all that bad. how will the investor class vote in 34 days? but first up, both mitt romney and president obama are in their respective hotel rooms now. they're making final preparations for the big debate and cnbc's own john harwood join
talk about are some of the numbers. we had 600,000 government jobs added in the last two months. we had 873,000 jobs by a household survey, which is a total estimate from 50,000 phone calls. of those 600,000 were temporary workers. chris, these numbers are all a series of assumptions, tons of assumptions, and it just seems somewhat coincidental that the month before the election, the numbers go one tenth of a point below where they were when the president started, although i don't see anything in the economy that says these surges are true. the 873,000 jobs in the household survey is the strongest economy since 1983. i don't think you can find an economist, there were 25 of them this morning that predicted 8.1% to 8.2%, but they did predict 114,000 jobs. we got 114,000 jobs, and somehow the assumptions ended up at 7.8%. >> well, let me get back to your tweet this morning. it must be embarrassing for to you do a tweet now after the power you used to have. i mean, tweeting, doesn't seem like something i'd hear from jack welch and i mean it. here you put out the word, unbelievable jobs num
wednesday. it will focus on domestic,such as the economy, health care, and governing. so we've assembled a panel of distinguish americans, i would say, to talk about the state of country and where they think america is today. mark zandi is with the moody analytics. he has a new book out called, "paying the price, ending the great recession and building a new american century." michelle rhee is the head of students first, an organization that hopes to reform public education. she, of course, is the former head ofure d.c. schools. former speaker newt gingrich is rejoining us. he does not have a new book out, but his wife calista, does have a new book out, a children's book that will be coming out tomorrow. bob woodward, an associate editor of the "washington post" is the author of "the price of politics" he's written more books than this entire table combined. well, maybe not when you put newt gingrich in there. and pulitzer prize-winning author hendrick smith who has a new book called, "who stole the american dream?" all you people are here to sell books. that's pretty clear.

of the federal government. many local jurisdictions all through it utah because the venue was not in one city. the international olympic committee, the united states allowed the committee, the zero of the committee of each of the nations that were participating in the organizing committee of each of the sports that were vault. in addition to that you have all of the sponsors that you had. you have the international media . an audience of billion people. at the end of those games everybody saluted mitt romney for his organizing ability. everybody was happy with the 2002 olympics which came from the edge of despair and disaster to an enormous and nationally recognized success. we need that camera capability. that kind of capability would be displayed increasingly throughout this campaign as it was in the veterans of foreign wars speech in the piece -- speech in israel protested to be , i think, a plan unfolding in real time. people who have been concerned about the campaign said to me it's not aggressive enough. campaign with 100 plus days left in it. those numbers are getting fewer and fewer.
'll hear the latest number of the obama administration to step down in yet another government spending scandal. bill: a mid-air scare of the wrong kind. what if your seat comes loose? listen. >> we want the airline to succeed. the bottom line is that management isn't make the right decisions the airline can't succeed. bill: what is he saying? could this have something to do with a union dispute? bill: a peanut butter recall expanding. whole foods, target and stop and shop pulling several grand from their shelves after salmonella-related illnesses were linked to peanut butter sold at trader joe's. martha: a top obama appointee is out of a job after a report blasting his agency's $6 million conference tab. including this spoof of a hollywood classic. >> one of the worst mistakes you can make in carrying out your mission is getting the idea in your head that stability is a virtue. stability is not a virtue it's a trap. it means you are holding your own. it means you are standing still. martha: acting ratings aside. doug mcelway joins us from washington. we are hearing that film which was
. it's a little more complicated than that. the federal government's was offering massachusetts $385 million, i believe, and that covered about half of the cost of providing care to uninsured people. governor romney had said at i have an opportunity to save the state a lot of money, because if we did not take the federal money, it would have gone away, we would not have access to it anymore. with health care reform, we are able to accept this large sum of money and free some of the cost of providing care for people who don't have health insurance. host: we're learning about the health care law that governor romney signed into law in massachusetts with the reports from the boston herald christine mcconvillechristine. she's been with the herald five years. she also reported for the boston globe before that. we have a phone line set up especially for massachusetts residents. and republicans and democrats can call us as well as independent scholars. -- callers. let's look at some details of how the health care law has played out. 98% of adults are now covered. nearly 100% of children are
for america, two conflicting views of government, a clash of ideas about the kind of democracy we want. it could hardly be a more stark choice for the country. but this is also personal it's about two men and who are and how they will connect with the american people. no doubt about it, this is a big night. join me now, cynthia tucker and erin mcpike who covers the campaign for real clear politics. thank you both for coming on the show. >> thank you. >> thanks for having me. >> erin, let me go to you first. mitt romney is behind. what does he need to cover up? what does he need to do tonight? >> he needs to show, especially middle class voters, that he has a plan. we've already heard from the obama campaign that the president is likely to push mitt romney on specifics and in the past couple of days he has telegraphed that we might see more specifics like immigration, especially tax policy. that's what we're going to be hearing more from him tonight, some specifics so that when a president bushes him, he's ready. >> now, one of the big gaffes or big mistakes, sin nilla, that we've seen
government officials have confirmed the committee that prior to the september 11 attacks, the u.s. mission in libya made repeated requests for increased security in benghazi. the letter goes on to detail a series of attacks and incidents in libya that formed the basis for those calls for more security resources, resources that the letter alleges were denied by officials in washington. we'll have more on that angle shortly. first, arwa damon joins me. she's back from libya and joins me here in new york. very good to see you safe and sound. walk me back. you were at the site three days after the attack. you have some still photographs that have never been seen before. describe what we see. >> well, the first in these photographs is basically the exterior of the main building at the compound itself. this is the building where the ambassador resided, and the right hand portion of the building is where the so-called safe room was supposed to be. as you can see, the burning all occurred inside the building itself. >> it doesn't look very touched on the outside. >> no. very much a lot of the dama
. and i'm quoting from the letter now. "multiple u.s. federal government officials have confirmed to the committee that prior to the september 11 attack the u.s. mission in libya made repeated requests for increased security in benghazi." the letter then continues. the mission was denied these resources by officials in washington. the house democratic leader nancy pelosi is here in "the situation room." let's get to some of the news. let's get your reaction right now to what chairman issa and congressman chaffetz are saying? >> i think it's important the congress has the right to know, but the department of state has to have the information. there is investigation by the fbi as to what happened in benghazi. and there's a review answering some of the questions asked. but how can you ask the secretary to come before the information is known? it's also important to note that the republican appropriation in congress gave the administration $300 million less than it asked for for the state department including funding for security. >> are you suggesting that there was a financial aspec
teams. some come from industries that have significant government interest, oil, gas, oil. payday lenders who are very concerned about the consumer financial section bureau regulating them, and are hoping for a romney win which would ease some of that. on the democratic side, there just isn't that collection of people right now. it doesn't mean that at no point in future will there be a large amount of very wealthy liberals, because they're out there who will pony up money. it's just a this cycle, very even if the saving grace of the president is he has improved in 2008, he is equally able to raise enormous amounts of money in very small amounts in political terms, enormous amounts of people. we're talking, i think we're up to $3 million for his campaign purchase either an idea of how it differs from what romney has been raising, this is three reports the camera, primary fundraising through the end of august, barack obama has raised 147 million, or 34% of his primary dollars of people who gave under $200. these are people mostly going online or respond to text messages or being hi
not have nothing to i worked so hard. i got the support of the government, and i am now a biochemistry major and in pre- med. governor romney is not telling the truth, like the president said. yes, he did not perform very well last night, but he was saying the truth. if you are president, if you are a candidate, you owe people the truth, because the truth has to serve you. if governor romney keeps with the things he has never set in the past -- he has been running as a conservative, has been running against abortion, many things in the primary -- >> thank you for the call. another view on immigration. let's get a couple more before we wrap up. sam in louisiana. >> hey, how are you, man? first of all, it is just stunning for me to hear democrats -- the views on how obama somehow won this debate but i don't see that as t all. i just don't see how obama answered any of the questions. he has lied over and over again about the $5 trillion tax cuts. on abc last night, jon karl said that is mostly fiction. multiple times. yes, both of them -- we are going to hear -- there wasn't much of a dif
. >> 47% of the people who vote for the president no matter what. who are dependent upon government, who believe they are victims, who believe the government has the responsibility to care for them, who believe they are entitled to health care, food, housing, you name it. and they will vote for this president no matter what. and so my job is not to worry about those. i'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility. >> top of the hour a live look at the white house on a rainy friday morning in washington. welcome back to "morning joe." we're here in washington. sam is still with us along with mark halperin up in new york and joining the table here in d.c. we've got a great group. former -- my professor? >> your professor. >> am i a good student professor gingrich? >> much better than me. you were my favorite student. >> wow. >> former white house secretary under president clinton and contributing editor to "vanity fair" dee dee myers is with us as well. okay. >> we just have a fascinating conversation. the contents of which we won't say completely on the air. >> oh. >> b
to describe those visions. i saw the president's vision as trickle down government and i don't think that's what america believes in. i see instead a prosperity that comes through freedom. >> not to be outdone, president obama tried to rebound from his pretty weak debate performance at a rally in denver. >> when i got on to the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. but it couldn't have been mitt romney. because the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy. the fellow onstage last night said he didn't know anything about that. >> tonight, the post-debate political landscape seems rather different. a whopping 67% think mitt romney won the debate. 25% for president obama. there's a long way to go in this debate and the divide between left and right is growing. that brings me to tonight's battleground america. the debate you have been waiting for. jennifer granholm versus newt gingrich. she's the former governor of michigan. he's of course, the former presidential candidate a
